Helping a Client Move into Psychiatric Treatment Through a Counseling Process

By Celia Brody

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1951

The author discusses issues that arise when a social worker's client expresses interest in psychiatric treatment. Typical barriers include time and financial need, the author notes, but it is just as important for the social worker to identify and address emotional barriers to successful psychiatric treatment. The task is not to help the client find the right therapist, but also to help the client to identify her/his goals, and manage her/his expectations. The author provides case examples from her agency, Jewish Family Service of New York, in order to illustrate these issues.
